Foxconn India’s iPhone plant resumes production after December protests

– World Affairs SRS

CHENNAI (Reuters) – Apple Inc’s supplier Foxconn resumed production at its plant in southern India on Wednesday, a company official said, nearly three weeks after it shut down due to protests against workers falling ill.

The company official, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the factory reopened with one shift and 120 employees.

The plant in the town of Sriperumbudur, near Tamil Nadu state capital Chennai, employs about 17,000 people, but was closed on December 18 after 250 workers fell ill with food poisoning, igniting protests.

The official said it will take two months for full production to resume.
